This was such a wild story!

"A 65-pound (29-kilogram) alligator snapping turtle with a face only its mother could love has found a new home at the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk after freaking out residents in a northern Virginia suburb.

The turtle, dubbed Lord Fairfax, was repeatedly crossing a residential road in the Alexandria area, according to Fairfax County Police. Not native to the area, the alligator snapping turtle is generally found in the wild farther south."
